Thank you to everyone in the School who made extremely generous donations of toys, gifts and hygiene products to Woman’s Aid Scotland for women and children living in refuge over Christmas.
The donations were dropped off at the Woman’s Aid office for Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire on December 21st and the staff were truly overwhelmed by the donations of hygiene products for daily living, and the collection of gifts for Children aged 0-16.
Heather Russell, CEO of Woman’s Aid has been in touch with those who organised the donation and thanked us:
“On behalf of Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire, I would like to thank you and everyone who contributed for all for your kind Christmas pledges and the generous donations… Through your noteworthy generosity, we can continue to support our diverse service provision. Your commitment to continuing to support our charity is genuinely appreciated. All of the thoughtful donations are important particularly at this time of year in allowing us to organise various festive activities including children’s Christmas parties, and provide individual gifts for each woman and child using our services service.”
As well as the donations, we will be sending a cheque to them in the New Year from the money collected from the ‘#Hello, My name is…’ badges.
The charity will use this contribution for workshops focusing on the Mental Health of teenagers within the refuge.
